I would recommend a finnish movie named Takiaispallo (Burdock Ball) from 1970. Pretty much tells the story of an unhappy marriage. The young daughter (who works at a local cafeteria) runs off with an older guy which contributes to the further decline of the unhappy relation between her parents. This is probably a movie that many can relate to.

Norway: None. Watch a Swedish movie instead, like Bergman's Persona and Hour of the Wolf (Vargtimmen).

I don't see any Danish people mentioning Lars Von Trier. He's a weird avant garde film maker. Some of his films are also critically acclaimed in USA.

Here's my attempt at suggesting an American movie.

I'd be pretty surprise if many people saw this already as it got pretty limited release in the US and was very sporadically released in Europe and Asia.

The plot builds up a little slower than what the trailer leads on, but it's definitely intense and holds that intensity until the very end. I watched this movie with no expectations and was genuinely surprised.

Outside of American movies, I've become a fan of Takeshi Kitano's films.

Apparently there isn't any Japanese around in world forums so I'm gonna recommend some of the best Japanese animations.

Picnic At Hanging Rock is an Australian classic:

Apart from that I haven't seen that many of the really famous Australian films. I really need to get on to that.

Irreversible (2002) It's not recent but I discovered it recently.
For mature audience only ! Quite shocking film, but it's a masterpiece.

Perhaps one exception is a movie called "O Homem do Futuro" (The Man of the Future, I don't know if it has a title translated into English). It is a comedy, but it carries an interesting message. One of the very few brazilian movies which don't focus social issues.
